Despite mainstream rumors that have given birth to the idea that President Donald Trump was potentially poised to return to Big Tech platforms, Truth Social is here to stay. Devin Nunes, the CEO of Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG), told Newsmax last week that rumors of Trump’s return to Twitter are fake news.
“If President Trump was going to return to any such other social media platform, he would probably have posted on Truth Social first, and probably the last people that he would tell it to would be fake NBC News,” he told Newsmax’s Chris Salcedo.
He added, “…I was just with President Trump yesterday. He likes Truth Social. He has no interest in going back to Twitter.”
According to a previous report from RSBN, multiple sources reported last week that Trump was allegedly planning his return to Twitter after his account was reinstated by Elon Musk. Nunes addressed the issue on Newsmax, pointing out that the mainstream narrative was spun from the Trump campaign team’s move to petition Meta to give them control of their accounts ahead of the 2024 presidential race.
“They take that and they say, ‘President Trump is now going back’ — it wasn’t even Twitter, and now they’re saying President Trump is going back to Twitter. And that wasn’t even part of this whole deal,” Nunes explained.
Last week, President Trump told Fox News Digital that Facebook and Twitter had made “a major business mistake” by ousting him from their platforms. “If they took us back, it would help them greatly, and that’s okay with me. We are talking to them, and we’ll see how it all works out,” he said.
President Trump launched Truth Social in February 2022 to counter the tyranny of Big Tech censorship. It has since grown exponentially, positioning itself as serious competition to sites like Twitter.
In January, Truth Social hit “record activity levels in the first week of January.” Per RSBN, Truth Social stated, “It seems that free speech is in demand.”
